This birthday girl knows how to arrive in style.

Talk show host Wendy Williams turned 55 on Thursday and she celebrated the occasion in a sprawling Instagram story.


The star was presented with a cake that looked like a Tiffany & Co box as she wore a tiara.

Alongside a picture of her grinning widely over a birthday cake in the form of an unmistakably turquoise Tiffany’s gift box, Wendy invited fans to view her Instagram story, where she documented her big day’s activities.

She captioned the snap, ‘Breakfast @tiffanysandco! Happy birthday to me…civilized! Go to my #IGstory to see how I spent my birthday and the new shoes I got! #hbd #cake’

In her story, the daytime queen is seen in a festive strapless black dress, wearing her blond hair short under the tiara.

She carried a cute black handbag with multi-colored embossed stones and was helped out of her car by a Tiffany’s attendant holding an umbrella in the same trademark turquoise hue the store is known for.

It all adds up to Wendy having a lot to smile about these days.

The daytime personality, fresh from a month-and-a-half hiatus from her show to care for her health and recover from her divorce, was beaming with the same giant tiara on Wednesday as well, the eve of her 55th birthday.

The Asbury Park, New Jersey native wore a sparkly pink knit sweater dress with tapered sleeves, and had bling to spare in addition to the showstopping headpiece.

Wendy was wearing her trademark ‘W’ diamond pendant, along with more ice around her neck, wrist and on her hand.

The diamond flower ring on her left middle finger looked especially chunky and impressive.

The soon-to-be birthday girl carried at least three bags, including a high end-looking black leather snakeskin tote and a shopping bag from Petrossian, the luxury French caviar brand.

In the car she got into, a stunning array of gifts were seen waiting for her in the trunk, presumably given to her by her show’s staff.

Williams is known for being an authentic and straight-talking presence on daytime TV, frequently discussing her tendency to ‘throw shade.’

She got her start in radio over 30 years ago, and quickly built a name for herself thanks to her brash personality and unmistakable voice.

July 8th marked Wendy’s first episode back as host of her nationally syndicated television talk show, after a multi-week hiatus in which the media mogul focused on her health and personal life.

She recently discussed, on air, her struggles with a condition known as lymphedema, which requires her to use a hi-tech machine to help reduce swelling in her limbs.

She posted about the condition on her Instagram account this week.

She also took time for herself after finalizing her divorce from Kevin Hunter, to whom she was married for 21 years.

The Wendy Williams Show, which is celebrating 10 years on the air, is syndicated and viewable on Fox and BET.
